I followed the link. Fabulous News. The link should be:
In case you can't see the link, IBM is announcing that they will release
annual OS/2 updates which will be called "Convenience Packs." The first
convenience pack will be released on November 30, 2000 and will include
the uni-processor kernel, latest base device drivers, OS/2 Warp
Developer Kit, Java 1.1.8, DVD, USB Support, Remote Initial Program Load
Support (RIPL), SpeedStep Power Management (important for laptops),
Localized Win-OS2, Boot Manager, and video enhancement for NeoMagic, S3
Savage, Trident, and Matrox G200.
But the really amazing news is:
"The first Convenience Package is planned for November 30, 2000. There
is no additional charge. Support will be provided for each annual
Convenience Package effective with the initial availability through
December 31 of the following year."
IBM is committing to supporting OS/2 indefinitely. So much for trying
to "kill" it. Heh, heh. They are also providing convenience packages
in all languages supported by Warp 4.
